Last year, China moved into position to lead the first set of global norms and standards to govern the future of artificial intelligence.
In 2019, China published a report on technical standards that would allow companies to collaborate and make their systems interoperable. The European Union and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development similarly published their own guidelines, and the Trump Administration signed an executive order to spur the development of standards in the U.S.
While the result of these efforts could introduce new ways to safeguard against bias and to ensure trust, they also attempt to create a strategic advantage for each stakeholder. As A.I. continues to develop according to different rules in China, the E.U. and the U.S., one of the hallmarks of the field—global academic collaboration—could drastically decline.
